Mutual Broadcasting System and Alfred Wallenstein – (First Mutual Winner) for Outstanding Entertainment in Music





Winner 1941 | WOR Radio, Mutual Broadcasting System

The Committee was strongly of the opinion that the award in music should go to Mr. Alfred Wallenstein of WOR Radio. Every music lover is grateful for the many fine programs by symphonic orchestras and the Metropolitan Opera Company. Mr. Wallenstein’s work partakes of greater originality; his presentation of the Bach Contatas, his search for the lesser-known classics, and the beauty and leadership which he has brought to the performance of his Sinfonietta—all these mark him as singularly fitted for this award.
